  4. Stephen Miller’s new wife is in charge of approving all coronavirus communications Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller was placed in charge of all government communications regarding coronavirus. Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney sent out a government-wide email ordering all official communications to go through Miller, who recently married White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, reported CNN. President Donald Trump placed Pence in charge of the administration’s response to the virus, and Jessica Ditto, his deputy director of communications, had initially been handling government messaging. But Miller took over that role Friday, less than two weeks after marrying the notoriously anti-immigrant White House adviser at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. The 28-year-old also serves as a special assistant to Trump, in addition to her duties for Pence, and previously served as spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under then-Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
  5. Trump fired the US Pandemic Response Team in 2018 to cut cost. Rear Admiral Timothy Ziemer abruptly departed from his post leading the global health security team on the National Security Council in May 2018 amid reorganization of the council by then-National Security Adviser John Bolten. Ziemer's team was disbanded. It is true the Trump administration axed the executive branch team responsible for coordinating a response to a pandemic and did not replace it, eliminating Ziemer's position and reassigning others. Trump also at that time cut funding for the CDC, forcing the CDC to cancel its efforts to help countries prevent infectious-disease threats from becoming epidemics in 39 of 49 countries in 2018. Funding for the CDC's global disease outbreak prevention efforts were cut by 80% which included the agency effort in China. ""I'M LIKE.....LIKE.......SMART.........VERY VERY SMART""

  7. According to a report from the Daily Beast, Donald Trump is directing members of his coronavirus task force to make sure they hammer at the Democrats when discussing progress the administration is making to combat the spread on the growing pandemic. On Friday night, at a rally in South Carolina, Trump set the tone by pointedly blaming the Democrats and telling rallygoers, “The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. They’re politicizing it. They don’t have any clue,” while also tying the growing health crisis to building his wall, by stating, “Border security is also health security.” As the Beast reports, “According to three sources who have independently discussed the crisis with him in the last three weeks, Trump has appeared preoccupied with his theory that liberals and the press were attempting to use coronavirus to make him ‘look bad’ prior to the November election.” According to the report, talking points have been distributed to Republicans who might be asked about the coronavirus developments to make sure they drag the Democrats into it — saying any comments they make about the administration’s efforts is “politicizing” the issue. The report notes that those instructions have also been relayed to members of the task force working under Vice President Mike Pence, with the Beast reporting, “… those talking points have been pushed as a primary message point for surrogates to emphasize. According to a person familiar with the strategy, the White House has encouraged members of the president’s coronavirus task force to denounce Democrats for attempting to politicize the crisis during media appearances this week.” “On Thursday, the Republican National Committee blasted out a message to surrogates and allies promoting a Fox clip of GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel declaring that Democrats are ‘politicizing this,’ and accused them of wanting ‘porous borders.’ Meanwhile, she said, Trump is ‘taking this by the horns like he always does. He’s going to make sure the American people are safe,'” the report continues, adding, “That same day, the Trump White House sent out a talking-points memo to its own media surrogates about how ‘while the President is leading aggressive response and preparation efforts, many in the media remain focused on attacking him at every turn.'”

  11. ‘Prepare for the worst’: CNN’s Avlon skeptical Mike Pence up to coronavirus job During his “Reality Check” segment on CNN’s “New Day,” contributor John Avlon cast a jaundiced eye the appointment of Vice President Mike Pence by Donald Trump to be the administration’s point man combating the coronavirus pandemic — pointing out the veep’s history when it comes to health matters is highly suspect. With the president reportedly admitting that he selected Pence to head the task force because he “doesn’t have anything else to do,” Avlon began with the age-old advice: “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.” “Preparing for a pandemic requires coordination, elevating science over superstition and a lot depends on the credibility of the person communicating,” Avlon began. “Which is why some eyebrows raised when President Trump tapped Mike Pence to lead the response to the coronavirus.” “Mike Pence’s big problem is he doesn’t have a stellar record when it comes to public health crises — at times he’s barely been on speaking terms with science,” the CNN contributor added. “For example, his reaction to an HIV outbreak in Indiana was described as a textbook case for how not to do it by an epidemiologist from Yale.” After detailing Pence’s bumbling response on that topic, Avlon got to the heart of the matter. “The wrestling match between science and partisan talking points doesn’t bode well for Pence’s new responsibility,” he explained. “This is a time to trust science and doctors and that means dropping the muzzle imposed on those like Dr. Anthony Fauci of the NIH. Pence is supposed to be Trump’s PR man ensuring they don’t contradict the president’s fact-free assertions. But Pence should venture on beyond the safe spaces of Sean Hannity’s show and fox news.” “I know, what a concept,” Avlon added sarcastically before pointedly adding, “This administration has a self-inflicted credibility gap when it comes to basic science, but dealing with coronavirus will depend on doing much more than just playing to the base.” You can watch below:
